Smacked My Porsche Up! (gave my cabrio a nose job)

Hey, first time here, so please bear with me, I need help!!

Had a bit of a bad smack with my 1989 S2 Cabrio, and did a fair bit of damage to the front. I have sourced a fair amount of parts over here in the UK, but I have an opportunity to buy a very weather beaten 1984 model, for very little cash. The main things are: how transferable are the control arms/front suspension units between the two models? Are there significant differences between the front cross members? How about the radiator?? And the badge panel and lock carrier, (which I am aware are different) but will they need much modification to fit?

One other thing, the selector/gear box was acting up in the S2, but is fine in the 84 model. Did Porsche do any changes to the gearbox over the years? or do they fit as direct replacements?

I am afraid, if I cannot get my baby back for a reasonable amount of money, she will have to go to the insurance company and inevitably - the breakers yard. But she was so gorgeous before I battered her, that I really want to try and bring her back again. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers guys,
